Geometry: Transformations, Congruence, and Similarity
Rigid motions are to congruence as what are to similarity? Investigate properties of rigid motions and define congruence in terms of rigid motions with the ninth chapter of a 10-part eighth grade workbook series. The lesson then prompts...

Informal Proof of AA Criterion for Similarity
What does it take to show two triangles are similar? The 11th segment in a series of 16 introduces the AA Criterion for Similarity. A discussion provides an informal proof of the theorem. Exercises and problems require scholars to apply...

Ratios and Proportions with Congruent and Similar Polygons
Investigate how similar and congruent figures compare. Learners understand congruent figures have congruent sides and angles, but similar figures only have congruent angles — their sides are proportional. After learning the...

New Review Triangle AA Similarity: Lesson
Two sets of congruent angles leads to three. Using diagrams of two triangles, the presentation intuitively shows that if two sets of angles are congruent, the third set is too. The portion of a geometry playlist uses that information to...

New Review Inscribed Similar Triangles: Lesson
Create similar triangles with a little altitude. A section of an extensive playlist on basic geometry discusses how an altitude of a right triangle creates similar triangles. Using the theorem, the presentation finds unknown side...
